Congratulations to Taira Meadowcroft

Taira Meadowcroft has accepted the position of Public Health and Community Engagement Librarian at the Health Sciences Library effective December 1st. Reporting to the Director of the Health Sciences Library, this is a newly created role that will focus on promoting public health initiatives across the University of Missouri campus, build collaborative partnerships, and expand opportunities for users across the state to engage with the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library. As she moves into this new role, we will be posting Taira’s current role so more details to come about that.

Taira joined the University of Missouri Libraries as a Graduate Library Assistant in August 2014 and was later hired as the Information Services Librarian at the Health Sciences Librarian in July 2015. She has also worked as a Library Associate at the Daniel Boone Regional Library and as Public Library Leadership Fellow with the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies here at MU. Taira graduated from SISLT with her MLIS in 2015 and holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Truman State University. She has been an active member of several library committees and has also volunteered as a conference planning team member for the Library Marketing & Communications Conference.

I am thrilled that Taira is taking on this new role that will utilize so many of her skills to help further our growing connections with the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, and the School of Health Professions. Please join me in congratulating Taira on this new opportunity!
